[OJS-3.4.0] retain (trace of) original filename in "download all files"

Describe the issue or problem
When downloading all files for an OJS submission, the file names in the generated zip file have the internal OJS identifiers. It would be great if the original filenames could be used instead.

Steps I took leading up to the issue
For example:

  1. Go to an OJS submission via Dashboard > Submissions > a submitted article
  2. In the Submission tab, click on ‘Download All Files’
  3. Open the downloaded zip file
  4. The file names all have an internal identifier, with no trace of the original filenames

What application are you using?
OJS 3.4.0-3

Additional information
It would be very helpful if the file names would consist of / contain a trace of the original filename. I had noticed an old forum issue Original file names for "Download All Files", but I don’t think the situation reported there has changed, meanwhile.

Hi @rvdb,

So far as I can tell, this capability does not exist in OJS, but is discussed similarly as a feature request here: Please retain part of the original file name - #5 by nef
